Bottom Line: Even Balayya's energy couldn't save this powerless and weak lion
After scoring a hit with Gautamiputra Satakarni and following it with a disastrous Paisa Vasool in 2017, Balakrishna is back to treat his diehard fans with his 102nd film , a massy entertainer directed by veteran Tamil Director KS Ravikumar, who is known to have delivered biggest blockbusters with the biggest superstars of Tamil cinema like Rajnikanth, Kamal Haasan, Ajith to name a few. Has the combo, which is badly in need of a blockbuster, succeeded in their attempt, playing to the galleries? Here's team AP Herald's exclusive first on net Jai Simha Review.

Narasimha lives a peaceful life with his child, though he's a man of mystery with a dark past. However, he faces threats to his life as well as his child's, and the reason being his clash with the evil Ashutosh Rana and Kalakeya Prabhakar. While his love story with Nayanthara also takes a beating because of Hariprriya's arrival, Balaiya now has to take care of his child and also eliminate the villains. How Balaiya destroyed the villains and whether he saved his child and joined Nayanthara is what Jai Simha is all about.
Balakrishna is his typical self with his casual and usual body language, and mouths crazy punches without regrets, and sends goons flying without mercy and respect for gravity. His energetic dances are a treat to watch, though some of the moves are all set to be part of memes and trolls. Nayanthara plays a cute girl next door role with ease, and impresses with her expressions and makes a mark. Ashutosh Rana is a loud caricature, and his villainy is worse than you could do nothing but laugh whenever he supposedly does something menacing. Hariprriya and Prakashraj are adequate while Natasha Doshi is purely dedicated to skin show.
The background score by Chirantan Bhat is loud and jarring, while of his songs, Only Priyam number picturized on Nayan and balaiya is hum-worthy, while the rest of the songs fall flat. Ram Prasad's cinematography captures the songs beautifully, besides showcasing the over the top stunts to perfection. Dialogues by M.Ratnam are poor, as they give a sense of deja vu and bore. 

After helped by Krish and letdown by Puri Jagannath, once again Balaiya has joined hands with an experienced maker, a veteran known for his industry hits, but not in the form currently, with his last noticeable flick being an average Kottigoba 2 in Kannada, which failed in its Tamil version. And has the gamble to join hands with KS Ravikumar paid off? Sadly, its a big no.


The story by M.Ratnam is already outdated, and Ravikumar's poorly written screenplay and characterizations reminiscent of Balaiya's very own Simha and Narasimha Naidu, with typical cliched scenes and boring punches, besides the extreme drags in the second half, further worsened by pathetic song placement, almost kill this Simha. With a weak villain, a hero who can just keep thrashing anyone coming his way, the need for 3 heroines totally unjustified, and with poor technicalities and an uninspiring and remotely engaging screenplay, Jai Simha is a predictable entertainer that deserves a skip.
